Words From Our Clients
TGM has been partnering with Real Estate Executive Search for 11 years and I highly recommend their recruiting services. It has been a pleasure working with Richard Birgel who is always professional and responds quickly to our hiring needs for qualified employee placements. Real Estate Executive Search continues to assist TGM with recruiting for numerous corporate and on-site positions in multiple states.
I am a huge fan of Richard Birgel and Real Estate Executive Search – you will be in excellent hands with him. Honestly, I have lost count of how many candidates Richard has helped us hire over the years. I will say that most have been at the Regional Property Manager level and my experience has always been A+.
Real Estate Executive Search ended our assignment by securing a high-quality candidate, who still works here today. Working with the entire organization, including their wonderful staff, was both easy and refreshingly simple.
Thanks to your recruiting expertise and the candidates you found, I now have an amazing team. After 20+ years I always know you will find me the perfect candidate for my staffing needs. I would recommend your company to any executive looking to build a real estate team from scratch, or to add quality professionals to their existing team. You truly listen to your clients and present candidates that exceed their expectations. Thanks for a job well done!
I have worked with Richard and Real Estate Executive Search for well over a decade now. Not only has Richard placed me in my past, but he has also found me the “best of the best” in real estate industry to work for me. Richard takes the time to learn my specific needs and does not stop until he delivers A+ candidates. I am often torn between the top-notch candidates he sends my way as he takes time to carefully interview prior to sending over to me. I have used other recruiters in my past, but none come close to the professionalism and care I get with Real Estate Executive Search.
I met Jayne on LinkedIn a couple of months ago and although I was content in my position, I was looking for something more. Through our conversations, Jayne was able to find a great match for my specific skill set and tastes. Not only that, she gave me interview tips and inside information that helped me get hired for the job!
